This blog pause has been brought to you by ……

…travel, eye exams, fabric and grompingness by Studmuffin. Oh and the choir.

Studmuffin objects to the fact that I call the Force of Nature’s seasonal baskets “Spring fertility ritual” baskets (which she has INSISTED on making for each of us for the last few years), and he has the NERVE to be offended – atheist that he is. I mean he was raised Catholic, so…. but please do tell: what do bunnies, chicks, lambs, eggs and candy have to do with the end of Lent and the Passion of the Christ? I would much rather solemnly celebrate Easter than all the rest of the spring fertility stuff that has stuck around from various ancient traditions…not that I’m hatin’ on the ancient traditions either. Oh well.

I love this picture.
